It slightly splits the carbon shaft and creates a pressure fit. Kinda hokey, but it worked for awhile.
Never broke a stock prop, but was knocking blades off these too easily.

Hey guys,
just wanted to show my latest "All American Tuppercanopy " I raided my wife's Tupperware last night and came up with this deal.
I was looking for something to put some cold cuts in after a sandwich last night and saw this oblong Tupperware thingy ! I thought with a little cutting and drilling it might make a nice free canopy.
After I got it to fit I colored the inside front with a red sharpie and the back with a blue one to help with orientation and to help it look a little better. Makes a nice 4th of July canopy. I marked and drilled it so it will fit in either the + or x configuration.
I have some stickers left over from an extreme canopy i got for my MSRX and i may see what they look like on it later
It seems like when ever I see something plastic i start to judge as to weather it will make a good canopy or not..........I need to get a life.....lol
Anywho, here it is and don't hurt yourself laughing !

Thanks. I stuck a piece of gyro pad (the double sided adhesive foam used to mount gyros on helicopters) on the bottom of the battery holder. It absorbs the vibration very well.

Then used a loop of rubber band (the stuff that's used in underpants) over the frame to hold the camera against the pad. This only works with the camera mounted upside down as otherwise the buttons get pressed during flight. The pad and rubber always stay on the frame, they weigh less than 2 grams.

After importing the video into iMovie I just flip it upside down.

Thanks man i appreciate that. it didn't look as bad as I first thought it might when I started. I know being made of Tupperware is will be tough, but i wonder if it will keep my quad fresher longer..........

anyone bought the orange MQX props and try them yet? I just got my set in at my shop and they sure are bright and easy to see for orientation. If you need brighter props I would highly recomend them.

+1 here. If you had not said you used colored markers I would have thought you painted the inside of it. Turned out nice indeed.

Hey All, Read this whole thread, could have skipped the appitizer , and gotten straight to the main course Lol.

Happy I bite the bullet. and even went and gotten a few bodies. I will have to tape the orginal up some.

SInce I did not see a keycam fab here, I thought I make a quick one and been trying to figure out a better way. All I did was slip a rubberband hte size the postal service uses, through hte boards frame, and taken todays paper clip and cut to sie and made a "S bend. If somesort of foam is needed, I used double sided adhesive, stickie protected, and see if it will work. SUre enough ATP for me

I can fly an rc plane no problem, orientation just fine. wit hteh quad, it's a nother ball game for me. I like to be in the open, and not closed in. practice,practice, practice.

enjoy the clip all
